Counting calories is the WORST! If you have to count calorie to stay thin, you’re eating the wrong kinds of food. Not all calories are equal, and that’s why you just don’t have to count them on a high carb, low fat, vegan diet.

gingerbee88:  Please go see a doctor instead of trying all these crazy diets/food changes.  You may have somethig more going on than you know if you are not losing weight at 1300 cal a day.  Don’t take advice from people who are on the internet.

Go see a registered dietician, especially with your thyroid condition. They can work with you to figure out what you should be eating and how much. As they’re discovering with the former Biggest Loser competitors, eating too low kills your metabolism. My trainer is currently calorie cycling me up so I can lose then maintain at a higher intake because food is awesome!

First and foremost, since you have a medical condition that impacts your weight, you should consult your physician for caloric guidance, and referral to a nutritionist.

1300 calories is probably too little. When you don’t eat enough your body goes into starvation mode and slows metabolism way down to stretch every calorie. 

Also, try incorporating strength training – muscle burns more than fat. You don’t need a gym or fancy equipment, there are tons of great body weight exercises you can do (push ups, planks, squats, lunges… check out Pinterest). Also, assuming you are medically able too, you might need to kick up the intensity of your workouts (once you’re eating sufficient calories to do so). 

Stick with it, it takes time to see results!

Please go to a registered nutrionist and get a Resting Metoblic Rate test. 

Following all these generic programs/diets really won’t help you . Especially with a medical condition, you need personalized information. What works for one doesn’t always work for another.
